Ad Space: Sidebar Real Estate

Hi Dolls!

Really quick before I forget again, I am getting a lot of emails regarding the sidebar of my blog so I am going to answer the main questions here because if you have tried you know I don't allow just anyone and paying for the ad space is the first but least important requirement.

1. How do I get on your sidebar?
You must have a business that falls directly in line with what the blog is about (sewing, retail, jewelry etc) BUT must be an established business with a good reputation and I MUST have used your product before. I try to stay as genuine as possible to my readers so I only place ads of those brands I have personal experience with.

2. How often do you allow new advertisers?
I do a check every 6 months and will rotate one or two new ones on to the sidebar. I keep only a few because that is not what the blog is about and if it is not something that can benefit my readers it just wont fit.

3. How do I submit?
You can email me HERE with your business info, website, description etc. and if I don't already use your product I must review it first (terms apply) and then we go from there.

One Space Available

I have room for just ONE more advertiser this year. I wont be allowing any further ads until the end of November so  if you want to send me your submission now is the time and I will be choosing the first week of June.

Makes Me HAPPY! Blogger Love

Hi Darlings!

My greatest joy is getting images of finished maxi's and pencil skirts and dresses that you guys make using my tutorials, it really just makes my life!! I wish I could post all the ones I get because there are so many which is why I have the Mimi G Flickr group where you can post all your finished garments and see what the other 340 members have made too!

Today I got an email from a gorgeous mommy of 2 named Shannon of 2nd Story Sewing who posted today about her finished Maxi Dress using my tut and I was so excited to see how great it turned out in a striped fabric and worm so chic with a little yellow belt. I wasn't going to post today because I am up to my eyeballs in to-do's but I had to share ESPECIALLY after I spent a little time snooping on her blog and found it to be just wonderful! I also found this great tutorial for a FREE Bow Clutch Tutorial  with great step by step pics.



Check out her TUTORIAL for a Bow Clutch!! Super Cute


I think I need to make myself Bow Clutch and another Maxi Dress in a great striped fabric
Thanks for the inspiration Shannon!
